The Civil War: Reality was different

Dear Fellow Conservative:

The politically correct history that dominates our schools and universities today insists that Jefferson Davis was another Hitler, Robert E. Lee was another Rommel, and the Confederate States of America were our own version of the Third Reich - a blot on American history.

But reality was different: the Old South, as H. W. Crocker III explains in The Politically Incorrect Guide to the Civil War, had slavery, but also immense charm, grace and merit - not to mention a very strong Constitutional case.

Now, for a limited time, HUMAN EVENTS is making The Politically Incorrect Guide to the Civil War available to you absolutely FREE in a limited-edition hardcover.

In your FREE hardcover copy of The Politically Incorrect Guide to the Civil War, you'll find among many intriguing items:

That secession was legal

That the Emancipation Proclamation did not free a single slave

That leading Northern generals - like McLellan and Sherman - hated abolitionists

That bombing people "back to the Stone Age" got its start with the Federal siege of Vicksburg

That Stonewall Jackson founded a Sunday school for slaves where he taught them how to read

That General James Longstreet fought the Battle of Sharpsburg in his carpet slippers

That if the South had won, we might be able to enjoy holidays in the sunny Southern state of Cuba

CLICK HERE to get your FREE hardcover copy of The Politically Incorrect Guide to the Civil War today.
Sincerely,

Thomas S. Winter
Editor in Chief, HUMAN EVENTS

Whoa, McLellan hated someone? Stop the presses.

Anyway, I hope this makes for good discussion in the DU American History Group.

Warm Regards,
Erik B. Anderson
Independence, NJ
